I’m a day late, but I’m still linking up with Anne at In Residence for her Currently feature
Currently: October 2021
This is my absolute favorite time of the year! I’m already doing some fun Fall/Halloween things, and I’m definitely planning for even more this month. What about you?? Feel free to answer any of the prompts in the comments!
Borrowing: Honestly, I’m not sure I’m really borrowing anything at the moment. I am curious how others have answered this question though! haha
Buying: a Harry Potter themed wand at the Ohio Renaissance Festival this past weekend! It was hard to choose the one I wanted, because they were all so well-made and cool looking. I eventually went with this light brown one with the Hogwarts emblem at the top.
Planning: Well, until Tuesday, I was planning a fun giveaway over on Instagram with some fellow bookstagrammers.

It’s live now though, so enter by Sunday, October 10th! Unfortunately, it’s U.S. only, but if you’re in the U.S. and love books and coffee, this one is for you!!
Prepping: Videos for TikTok. I have officially become obsessed with the app. There are just so many fun, amusing, and creative videos on there! I’ve even started making my own – mostly book related or ones to do with my cat, Charlie. I’d love for you to follow me over there if you have an account!

I’ve been trying to make videos when I can and saving them to my drafts so that I have something ready when I want to post. At the moment, I’m posting a video a day…or every other day. I’d love to know if you’d like to see anything specific over there!
Reading: a lot of books throughout the year. I put my Goodreads goal at 100, and I’ve already read 98 books so obviously I’ll be going over 100 soon. At the same time, I feel like I’m not reading as much on a monthly basis as I have in the past. I try not to worry about it too much though. Expect some book reviews soon, however! Some books I’ve read and enjoyed recently: Rock Paper Scissors by Alice Feeney, The Family Plot by Megan Collins, and This Is Why We Lie by Gabriella Lepore .
